Residents, families, and friends of Rogue Valley Manor,
The situation at Rogue Valley Manor’s campus has improved and I would like to now take the opportunity to provide an update to you all. First and foremost, I want to extend my sincerest thanks to everyone who rose to the challenge of having to evacuate our community, from our dedicated staff and PRS leadership to our residents who continue to highlight the incredible spirit that embodies Rogue Valley Manor, even under the direst circumstances.
 
Yesterday afternoon, the Rogue Valley Manor’s campus was lowered to a Level 2 evacuation status, allowing most residents to return to our campus. Our Skilled Nursing residents will remain at the Avamere Three Fountains community at least until tomorrow but we look forward to welcoming them back to campus very soon.
 
During this crisis, we established communication via phone and Facebook to get information on your friends and loved ones who reside at Rogue Valley Manor. Aside from the Skilled Nursing residents who remain at Avamere Three Fountains, you can now contact Manor residents through the normal, pre-crisis channels. If you have questions or are trying to reach a resident in one of our care levels or at Avamere, please call our Emergency Activation Line at 541.857.7771 for assistance. Everyone at the Manor appreciates your support and understanding as we navigated the events of the past two days, and are grateful for your continued outreach and concern. I’m pleased to say that visitors may also now return to campus to visit their friends and loved ones.
 
Finally, I want to extend my sincerest thanks to the many kind citizens and businesses across the Rogue Valley who answered the call when we needed them most. There are too many to thank here, but I wanted to call out the particular efforts of the Rogue Valley Country Club, Avamere at Three Fountains, The Super 8 Motel in Grants Pass, Seven Feathers Resort in Canyonville, Jackson County First Student Bus Service, and The Courthouse for their unbelievable heart and compassion during our time of need. And of course, in closing, it goes without saying that the Rogue Valley Manor community sincerely thanks our region’s first responders for their tireless dedication and heroic efforts during these harrowing days.
 
Sincerely,
Stan Solmonson
Executive Director, Rogue Valley Manor

Update: 11:45 am, September 9, 2020

Our campus has moved to a level 2 alert status and independent living residents can now return. We are in the process of transporting residents who evacuated to Rogue Valley Country Club. While level 2 allows us to return to campus, it is still a high alert status and we will continue to monitor the situation.

Out of an abundance of caution we are not yet moving residents in healthcare settings back to campus. We will reassess expected conditions after further consultation with authorities. We will post an update later today specific to our plans for healthcare.

Update: 7:00 am, Wednesday, September 9

Late yesterday evening, we completed a total evacuation of campus under level 3 orders from Jackson County Sherriff’s Office. The process was completed safely for residents and staff. We are monitoring the status of those evacuation orders and will initiate return to campus when permitted to do so.

We temporarily evacuated to the following sites:

Skilled nursing residents

Safely relocated to a skilled nursing center located in Medford, OR (Avamere Three Fountains) along with staff to provide care and comfort. All residents are accounted for as of Wednesday, 7:00 am.

Assisted Living residents

Safely relocated to a hotel in Canyonville, Oregon (Seven Feathers Hotel) along with staff who continue to provide care and comfort. All residents are accounted for as of Wednesday, 7:00 am.

Memory Support residents

Safely relocated to a hotel in Grants Pass, Oregon (Super 8) along with staff who will continue to provide support during this time. All residents are accounted for as of Wednesday, 7:00 am.

Independent Living residents

Many IL residents evacuated on their own prior to official orders. We do not have a destination location for IL residents who self-evacuated.

Several hundred residents evacuated to Rogue Valley Country Club along with team members of ours to provide support. We are maintaining a log of residents who arrived at or were transported to this location.
